Chiang Mai Family Trekking
Chiang Mai Family Trekking – the highlight of your holiday
Thailand is a great family destination
Thailand is a fantastic destination for your family. It is affordable, and it is very safe. The Thai people are very welcoming to families with children. You can’t miss a Chiang Mai Family trekking on your holiday with your kids. Thailand is probably the child-friendliest country in Southeast Asia. There is a wide range of food available, hygienic standards are very high, and many hotels have family rooms. Thailand is also still great value for money. It is always very exotic and very different from Western countries, culturally as well as weatherwise. Finally, Thai people love children.
Experience with family trekking
During the European summer holidays, families have traveled to Thailand for a holiday in increasing numbers. Many of our guests come from Europe. We organized hundreds of family treks over the past twenty years. In general, these treks are two-day tours.
Our guides have a lot of experience and can give you and your children an unforgettable experience. The Chiang Dao East area is very suitable for families with children of all ages. There are villages of Karen, Akha, Lisu, Lahu, and Palong. Between these villages there numerous roads and trails. It gives us great flexibility to customize the trip to the needs and wishes of your family. The communities where we stay overnight are used to see tourists but are still very hospitable and friendly.
Fun activities for kids
Your guide will stimulate interaction between your children and the children of the village where you spend the night. We will make your overnight as comfortable as possible. Spending the night in a tribal community is a memory for a lifetime. Your guide will prepare your meals. It is always fun to help him cooking and learn to make some local dishes.
Amazingly, they can prepare delicious meals on a wood fire. The village where we spend the night can be reached by car, and we have emergency scenarios in case something happens. The Huay Nam Dang area is more challenging and therefore suitable for families with older children. The rafting on the Mae Taeng River is the best bamboo rafting in the Chiang Mai area.
Our Tribal Experiences are perfect for families
Our new Tribal Experiences trips are very suitable for families as well. You can call these trips immersive and interactive “slow” travel. We spend much time in the villages and engage in different interesting, educational and fun activities with the local people. These can easily be adjusted for children. Please get in touch with us so we can customize the program and deliver an experience they will never forget.
Transportation and safety on a family trekking
Our family programs include transport by minivan. All the seats have safety belts. This is the safest. Possible transportation. We work with the same drivers already for many years. We trust them. Some of our tours feature a visit to an elephant-friendly venue where you can help bathe elephants and will learn about the Asian Elephant. We don’t offer elephant rides and don’t include elephant shows. Some tours feature a bamboo raft river trip. We always provide life vests. Health and safety are our biggest priorities. We regularly organize refresher first aid courses for our guides. We have limited medical insurance for our guests.
